This review is from: How the Mighty Fall: And Why Some Companies Never Give In (Audio CD)
I am a big fan of the work by Jim Collins and his team. I listen to this and his other books (BTL & GTG) regularly on my long journeys. I love the insight into the inner workings of the huge companies they dissect and the history behind those businesses. I would urge businesses owners, budding entrepreneurs, or those seeking to create an area of excellence such as a school or a department within the school to listen to all his work to date. This is not the depressing piece of work I had anticipated, in my opinion it underlines and expands on earlier principles.
If I had to choose a book of his to start with it would be Good to Great.
